2006 VUE 3.5L
2001 L-Series 3.0L Wagon
Default '06-'07 Grille

Noted while doing my transmission fluid that this car is a bottom breather, so the Black Grille between the headlights is just for show... was there any plain body colored panel or actual functional replacements for this?

Not really something I would do at this point but nice to know if they exist.

I'm not sure about color keyed grills but you could get some paint to match mixed with clear coat at a paint shop in aerosol form and do it yourself over a weekend. I blacked out my chrome colored grill on my old Ciera and it came out quite nicely. Just take your time to prep it correctly.

I never thought of color keying the grille, I was thinking of more on a blank insert that may be available where the black is, that could be painted body color, (giving an apparance more like the '02-'05).

I blacked out the Grille on my '95 Lumina APV, it came out better, since the chrome was mostly gone.
